This report is the sixth in a series that examines officer career development. Two unrestricted line officer communities were examined surface warfare officers SWOs and general unrestricted line officers GenURLs. The purpose of the research was to collect data to help policy makers and career managers improve the officer assignment detailing process. Questionnaire data regarding officers perceptions of their detailers were analyzed N 997 and interpreted in terms of negotiation concepts. It was found that officers believed that detailers basically used an integrative responsive bargaining style, but that some specific detailer traits and behaviors need to be changed. A conceptual model that had been formulated to explain officer perceptions was found to be useful. Recommendations were presented regarding how the detailing system could be improved.
